This 3 feet cable is ETL verified to meet or exceed all Category 6 performance standards and features a durable red jacket that simplifies departmental color coding while providing rugged flexibility for network connections. To ensure long-lasting performance, our high quality Cat6 UTP Patch Cables offer PVC molded strain relief that prevents the RJ45 connector termination point from bending at sharp angles - reducing the risk of cable damage, which could decrease network performance. StarTech. com's 3 feet red Cat6 UTP Patch Cable is constructed of only top quality materials to ensure optimum durability and is backed by our Lifetime Warranty. 100% Copper - a better valueStarTech. com Cat 6 cables are manufactured with copper conductors. While many cable manufacturers offer a "cheaper" cable based on a copper-coated aluminum core, we make no compromises on quality to ensure you receive top value for your cable investment. 23 Gauge WireOur Cat 6 cables are constructed with 23 gauge copper wire to support a broad range of Ethernet applications, such as Power over Ethernet (PoE). Because we use a high quality 23 gauge wire, our cables easily sustain the nominal voltage (48v) capability required for Power over Ethernet applications, whereas the inferior quality offered by copper-coated aluminum cables may be subject to insufficient power delivery, heat build up, equipment damage and potentially, fire. 50 micron Gold ConnectorsStarTech. com Cat 6 cables offer high quality connectors comprised of 50 micron gold to ensure optimum conductivity while eliminating signal loss due to oxidation or corrosion.
